Businesses can also struggle in dealing with the content that an employee shares or constantly checking their social media while at work.

The Federal Government is also developing a pilot external dispute resolution scheme, the outcomes of which will inform whether to establish a Digital Platforms Ombudsman to resolve complaints and disputes between digital platforms and individual consumers and small businesses using their services.

The government will assess the development and rollout of the pilot scheme over the course of this year, along with any parallel improvements in associated internal dispute resolutions processes. This will inform their consideration of the need for a broader external dispute resolution process, including a proposed Digital Platforms Ombudsman, in 2021.
